As I dug an 18" deep trench about 125' long this past Friday and Saturday using a small backhoe attachment on a John Deere 70 tractor, I thought, "Really, could this be any tougher?"
Oh really? Snap back to reality as I watch a documentary about the Suez Canal which was originally dug in part by hand.
This makes me think of how we all accept the challenge of spreading the Good News. We have email, text messages, Twitter, Facebook, etc... for communication, yet we think, "Could this be any tougher?"
This week as you go out into the world, think about how tough it would be to be nailed to a cross to save the world from sins. Then think just how easy it is to say, "Come grow with me in Christ at Striplin Terrace."
